Ever have days when your back is sweaty but your hands are frozen? Different zones of your body produce, hold and release heat differently, making staying comfortable—especially in fluxuating winter temperatures—a challenge for you and your wardrobe. That is, unless your wardrobe is stocked with Gore's New Comfort Mapping technology, which strategically places new, functional fabrics—some that trap heat and others that release it—in technical garmets to accommodate your body's various temperature zones. For example, base layers and jackets are constructed to provide more insulation around your core while placing more breathable, antibacterial fabric in your underarm area. The new technology also enables designers to address the unique needs of men and women. “Gore’s new Comfort Mapping Technology allows for more possibilities in fashion and design," says John Reany, Gore product specialist. "In a nut shell, it’s zoned warmth with less bulk.” To read more about Gore's comfort mapping, click here.
